Self-Guided Walking Tours is a great option! - Visited the US eastern seaboard and several popular cities with much history. I’m not much for walking with crowds, I like doing things at my own pace, ooooh and paying less money by the way is always a bonus. WalknTours was the solution as we roamed Savannah, GA. I thought this particular download tour within the WalknTours app was good, informative and had good narration. I think the tour could have been a little longer though and we did manage to work around some directional issues that potentially could disorient people. In either case, it was a fun, beautiful and enjoyable stroll in historic Savannah, GA. Not sure how some of the other walking tour downloads are within the app but I’ll find out in the future and best of luck to you Greg Dunn as you further develop this app and your tiny business.

Highly recommended - It has been a month since we returned from Savannah, and both my wife and I remember this tour as one of the highlights. It was lively and fun, while at the same time got us familiar with the downtown area with all its juicy folk stories. Highly recommended.

I really love the walkin tours. - I love being able to go at my own pace and decide how much information that I want to hear about a particular site. It is really nice to be able to pause the to when I want to go into a shop or get a refreshment when I want. The historical information is informative and interesting. The directions to stay on the toyr are easy to follow.

The stories and history... - The stories and history of the public squares gave insight on how Savannah grew. The ability to do a “deep dive” on certain locations were fun and well done. Seeing the birthplace of the Girl Scouts was a memorable moment.

Disappointing - Had a terrible time down loading app. Even with had 5 G. Couldn’t get sound to work. Only thing we could get was map tour and introduction by voice. The app. Just wasn’t user friendly at all. Waist of money.

Buy directly from the app. - Couldn’t get code and app to work together. Never used the app for intended purpose. Code provided by Viator would not work.
